On pastoral fields and gently rolling hills above the Hudson River, two hotly contested Revolutionary War battles fought here ended in an American victory so momentous that it is known as one of the most important in world history. This tour begins at the Visitor’s Center with a description of the British Campaign of 1777 and then continues with a riding tour through the battlefields with stops enroute. Saratoga Battlefield is a National Historical Park.

A Private Guided Tour of the USS Slater – The Last Destroyer Escort Afloat in America. During World War II, 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and material. In the Pacific they stood in line to defend naval task forces from Japanese submarines and Kamikaze air attacks. Today, only one of these ships remains afloat in the United States, the USS SLATER. Enjoy our private tour through the ship and take a step back in history and honor our brave men and women who have served our country.

We had a wonderful time. Kevin was our guide and he was terrific and very informative. I have been to Amish Country many many times and the main reason I wanted to go this time was to see Queen Esther at the Sight and Sound Theatre. The show did not disappoint me. The only thing I would off liked was a little more time shopping in Intercourse, Pa. even if it meant skipping the train ride in Strasburg. Thanks for a great time and I look forward to traveling again with FASCA and Best of Times.

We had a great time and Kathy was a wonderful, thoughtful, helpful and caring escort. The trip would not have such a success without her. The shows were fantastic and Amish country was beautiful and enjoyable. The hotel were terrific and the food was acceptable.

Shows were phenomenal, food & accommodations were great. Only disappointment was being constantly rushed. Too much crammed into too short a time. The trip could have used an extra day or schedule less activities so it would be more leisurely & enjoyable.
By Terry B for Auburn Travelers/FASCA - PA Dutch - Queen Esther, Philly, Strasburg on 25 Sep, 2021
We had a great time. Everything was as planned. We would recommend this trip to everybody that wants to travel without driving themselves.

If you are hesitating to book with Good Times travel, don't! The transportation and bus driver were top notch as was the venue and the menu selections. Attendees at my table had chicken or lasagna and all commented it was HOT and delicious. I've now become a 71 year old groupie! The Corvettes, Doo Wop Revue is top notch. I've been to many name artist shows and this group was better than many. The voice, the audience interaction, the non stop singing and their song choices were all fantastic. Every part of this trip was a winner. I'm a veteran/seasoned traveler in booking my own trips or occasionally using an agency for overseas trips and Good Times has everything covered. I look forward to traveling with them again, whether overnight or a day trip.
